My Dearest Sparkle Baby, I Love You – My First Giveaway! (pic heavy)

Today is my birthday! Woo! Exciting times! In celebration of my mom and all the work she’s done, I want to talk about Sparkle Baby, my makeup one true love.

IMG_1447

A few months ago, I made my first Sugarpill order. Finally. Sugarpill is one of those companies that I’ve been wanting to try so badly.

They have a reputation of being a very bright, colorful, and unique company that offers bright, colorful, and unique colors. This is a well-deserved rep. Their products are so punch-in-your-face colorful. It’s amazing. Not only is the brand known for being a bit out-there and colorful, they are also known for their firm position on animal cruelty. Most of their products are vegan, and none of them are tested on animals. Now, that is something I can get behind.

Also, look at their branding. Their box is fabulous. I saved it, of course. Why wouldn’t I? It’s adorbs! And it complemented me and called me cute – I like that.

IMG_5373 IMG_5374

Their products are pretty expensive (at least for me). Palettes are $34, and individual pans are $12 (which each palette has 4 pans, so a good deal if you want all the colors). Luckily for me, when I made this order, they were having a 20% off sale, so I not only picked up a palette for me (and one for you – more on that later), but I also picked up a single pan of Mochi.

IMG_5376

Anyway, today I’m going to show you the Sparkle Baby palette, which is by far their least-outrageous one. Also, it’s their most ultra-adorable one.

IMG_5382

Seriously.

IMG_5383

Look at it.

IMG_5388

It’s so cute.

IMG_5389IMG_5390

How could you not want it?! It’s so f-in cute that there was no way for me to not choose this one. Absolutely no way. I looked at the other palettes, which I will pick up eventually, but this is where I had to start – in Adorable Land!

IMG_5554

 

Sparkle Baby has four colors in it:

  • Kitten Parade
  • Frostine
  • CandyCrush
  • Hotsy Totsy

 

Kitten Parade is adorable, just as to be expected with a name like that. SERIOUSLY. WHO WOULDN’T LIKE A PARADE OF KITTENS?!IMG_5384

It’s a rose gold, but it leans much more on the rose-y side. It’s got some subtle gold shimmers hidden in it too. Without a white base, it’s not super pigmented, but even with just a white base, it really pops! Over regular Primer Potion, I find that the color shows just as well as with the white base.

 

Frostine is a lovely lilac with a soft pink sheen. Without a base, it doesn’t show up well. But with, it has more oomph. But, even with a white base, this one is much more soft than the others. I think that’s part of it’s charm, though. Or maybe I love the palette so much that I can look past anything. Who knows! What I do know is that my pics make it look gray – trust me, this is lilac with a pink sheen. Trust me! It’s a bit on the powdery side, especially compared to the creaminess of Kitten Parade, but it’s still nice.IMG_5385

 

CandyCrush is my favorite. I am a sucker for minty greens. And this one is a beautiful one! It’s a minty green, slightly on the aqua-side of things. It’s got silver sparkles and a silver sheen to it. It makes me wish I were a mermaid. Again. I seem to wish that a lot… It’s the red hair. I did always want to be Ariel.IMG_5386

 

Hotsy Totsy is the darkest of the bunch. But then again, if you are wearing a ton of pastels, you need to add something to it to give it some depth. And this one is not for the faint of heart. It’s a dark magenta color, with a slight purpleness to it with bright pink glitter. Like the others, this one needs the white base under it to really pop.IMG_5387

 

Swatch time! Bare skin swatches on the bottom and NYX white base swatches on top.IMG_5393 IMG_5394 IMG_5395 IMG_5396 IMG_5397 IMG_5398 IMG_5399 IMG_5400 IMG_5401

 

In addition to Sparkle Baby, I picked up a pan of Mochi. Mochi comes in the Heartbreaker palette, which I wanted to pick up, but it always seems to be sold out when I am looking on the site. And I reeeeeaaaaalllly wanted this color. Oh and mochi is delicious!

Again, I am a sucker for minty greens. This one is is a bit darker than CandyCrush, and matte, but otherwise, it’s in the same family.

First, look at the packaging! I am such a sucker, and Sugarpill knows just the branding that is going to draw someone like me in.IMG_5377 IMG_5378IMG_5379

Mochi was a bit disappointing to me in that the color payoff wasn’t nearly what I expected. I had a tough time getting it to really build up, so it’s pretty sheer each time I use it. But the color itself is quite lovely. And the sheerness of it has actually made it more wearable for me, believe it or not.

IMG_5391 IMG_5392

 

And I also got a free sample of Birthday Girl Chromalust, which are Sugarpill’s bright and super sparkly loose powder. IMG_5380 IMG_5381

White base made this one jump out too. It’s a bright, princess pink with tons of hot pink sparkles. Definitely not for the faint-hearted. I had a bit of a reaction to this though. My skin turned red when I washed it off and it was a bit irritated. I think the fine glitter may not be good for me or my other sensitive-skin people out there.IMG_5402 IMG_5403 IMG_5404 IMG_5405

Overall, I am in love. In fact, I am driving my husband absolutely crazy because I run around the house shouting “SPARKLE BABY” at the top of my lungs every time I use this… No really. This is true.

Before we get to the good stuff, here are some pics of looks I did with SPARKLE BABY!!!!

    I don’t do as many crazy color combos as I’d like to, but I love patting a bit of orange or green over the center of my lid after doing a neutral eye look to add interest!

    • teacupjoy

  • battycaduceus

  • savahontas
    July 22, 2015

    I love this! I agree – minty green is the way to go. I would probably highlight it with a bright white.

    • teacupjoy
      July 22, 2015

      Minty green and white sounds so pretty!

  • Kristina V
    July 22, 2015

    As far as crazy makeup goes, I love electric blue eyeliner paired with a bright lip.

    • teacupjoy

      Fun! Whats your fave electric blue eyeliner?

  • Emily A.
    July 22, 2015

      • teacupjoy
        July 22, 2015

        Yeah I love that combo! I think I have some yarn that combination… I should make something with it soon….

    Happy Cake Day! This palette is gorgeous. T.T

    Some of my favorite looks are done with yellow and different shades of pink. MPZ’s Old Bruise is one of my favorite yellows and it looks awesome with the mNg trio or the shade My Pretty Zombie.

    • teacupjoy
      July 22, 2015

  • Kaela
    July 22, 2015

    In terms of colourful shadows, my favourite combination is bright lime green under my eye and a purple smokey eye on top. Super fun! 😀

    • teacupjoy
      July 22, 2015

      That sounds so fun!

  • amaijala9792
    July 22, 2015

    I don’t know if it’s really considered “crazy,” but I did a look yesterday with cream, baby blue w/ green sheen, and cool purple w/ pink sheen. It turned out a lot better than I thought it might.

    • teacupjoy
      July 22, 2015

      Did you get a picture of it? That sounds very pretty.

  • Melanie
    July 22, 2015

    OHH LOVE this, thanks for the super sweet chance! Hmmm… my craziest color combo, orange & green… sounds super weird, but it’s pretty (Promise, lol)!

    • teacupjoy
      July 22, 2015

      Sounds fun!

  • Abby
    July 22, 2015

    Ooh! That final look is one of the more wearable pastel looks I’ve seen lately. I tried to do something similar at Easter and failed miserably. I often pair purple with shimmery taupes.

    • teacupjoy
      July 22, 2015

      I like your name! We’re the same, but spelled differently. 🙂

  • em
    July 22, 2015

    I’ve recently been doing a lot of bright jewel green eyeliner for everyday can’t-look-too-weird makeup and pastel (lavender has been my recent fave!) all over lid with a dramatic dark crease for fun!

  • Deb M.
    July 22, 2015

    These swatches look amazing! Makes me wish I have bought some before a no-buy. Whoops! I love doing dark brown liner, and neon/bright pink over the lid, and a neutral brown in my crease. 😀

    • teacupjoy
      July 22, 2015

      Brown and neon pink – that sounds fun!

  • Niamh
    July 22, 2015

    This is such a beautiful palette for the Summer time! I think just as little accents here or there/as liners these would be beautiful too!

  • goddessgrrly
    July 22, 2015

    Happy birthday! I love the looks you came up with!

  • Brenda Haines

    I have been known to go with green and yellow when it’s Duck Football time. Less than 2 months away 🙂 lol.

  • H
    July 22, 2015

    This is so colourful! My favourite colourful combination is probably red and gold, although dark greens with a hint of aqua come close second.

    • teacupjoy
      July 23, 2015

      Ooooh what about aqua and gold? That sounds fun too!

  • a Lacquer Critic
    July 22, 2015

    I like pale mint greens/almost-turquoises with deep, true reds – not just for eyeshadow, but for nail polish too. As for your swatches, man, I did not like Frostine and Candy Crush in the pans, but I love your swatches of them – they look way better on you.

    • teacupjoy
      July 23, 2015

      Thanks! I thought I would be disappointed in Frostine, but I keep wearing it. I probably wear it more than any of the other colors actually!

  • Kris
    July 22, 2015

    I absolutely love purples and teals together for makeup. Also kitten parade looms spectacular!

  • Cassandra
    July 22, 2015

    I’ve been lusting after this palette for so long, and this has only affirmed my need for it! Sad to hear Mochi is somewhat sheer, but it’ll remain on my wishlist cause the swatches still look lovely.

    For crazy colour combos…I can’t say I do many, but orange and purple usually complement each other quite well! 😀

    • teacupjoy
      July 23, 2015

      Yeah this palette is amazing. I am in love with it!

  • Samantha
    July 22, 2015

    Wow, Kitten Parade is right up my alley! For a vibrant color combo I like to have a neutral brown on the crease and a foiled dark teal/green shimmer (ie. FF Sugar Rush) to really make my dark eyes pop out! Happy Birthday <3

    • teacupjoy
      July 23, 2015

      Thanks!

  • bloop

    Lavender w/ lime green in the inner corner is one of my favourite brighter eye looks. Great swatches!

    • teacupjoy
      July 23, 2015

      That combo sounds fun! I’ll def need to try that out!

  • rachel cartucci
    July 23, 2015

    I love turquoise and yellow eye shadow…it’s a weird combo.

    • teacupjoy
      July 23, 2015

      It sounds so tropical! I wish I was at the beach drinking a pina colada…

  • Lisa Brown
    July 23, 2015

    I love the eye look you came up with, so bright and pretty! My favorite eye shadow pairing is purple and green, with a super glittery rainbow holo highlight

    I’ve been lusting after Sugarpill’s red/orange eyeshadows forever.

    I like blue and yellow as a crazy color combo.

    I don’t often do crazy colour combinations, but when I do I love to do a bright orange with a bright pink! (which is why sometimes I use blush as an eyeshadow, because super pigmented hot pink shadows are not that easy to find)

      The one in this palette is good. Also Darling Girl has a hot pink called “Obviously a Wig” – I recently got that and def recommend it!

    I have brown/reddish hair and hazel eyes, so I sometimes like to use jewel/emerald green eyeshadow to make my eyes pop.
